High school students learned about horned toads at a summer camp hosted by Comanche Nation College. The camp was funded through a partnership between Comanche Nation College, NSF's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, Oklahoma IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Students learned about the endangered animal, as well as Comanche history and culture.
